Finally some decent progress towards integrating two great spatial data analysis platforms? On the other hand it might be one more attempt to kill off any kind of open data formats by ESRI... Time will tell I guess...

Population and movement pattern analyses conducted by WorldPop and Flowminder using mobile phone data are now available:
As disaster recovery and response efforts started in Nepal after the recent, strong Earthquakes, WorldPop and partner organization Flowminder team members have responded quickly with both mapping and analysis. This links contains the most up-to-date summaries of population and demographic information we've compiled. These include fine-scale population movement as measured by mobile phone data records.

We are constantly getting new and more refined data and if you're working on the ground the link below will always contain our most recent and best available work:

We just wanted to share up-to-date population density estimates for Nepal, for anyone looking for data to aid in support or relief efforts. We produced these maps with newly acquired admin level four census units and high-resolution built-area data.
We just released newly  updated population density maps for Nepal to aid in analyses and relief efforts.  You can find the data freely available at the link below, along with a metadata report outlining the methods and data used to produce the updated maps.  Please let us know if there are specific age-structured or other types of analyses that would be of use!

Check out our newest publication from our Communities and Forests in Oregon (CAFOR) project. In it we look at how participation in forestry extension and levels of understanding about forests relate to perceptions about forest conditions.
